Hawick and Wilton


Poor batting display costs Hawick

Hawick 88 all out

Fauldhouse 89 for 5

Fauldhouse win by 5 wickets


Another poor display with the bat proved costly for Hawick at the weekend as Fauldhouse were victorious by 5 wickets.

Not scoring enough runs and giving away cheap wickets was the main reason for the Teries loss, but their effort with bowling and fielding was again excellent.

Batting first, captain Ronan Alexander’s poor form with the bat continued as he was caught early on, before Euan Hair made 10.

Stuart Hair added 18, but after Evan Alexander and Rory Anderson were both dismissed in the dangerous opening bowlers final over, this left Hawick in all kinds of trouble.

However, opening batsman Gary Alexander remained resilient with wickets falling all around him as his patient knock proved to be vital in Hawick’s total as he made 34

Last man Andy Renwick was left unbeaten on 7 in his first match returning to the club, but Hawick were all out for a below par 88.

Despite the low total, Hawick had a dangerous bowling attack that were capable of defending it.

Stuart Hair and Ronan Alexander bowled well without reward before the latter got a run out for the first wicket.

Gareth Welsh then thought he had the new batsman out stumped first ball, but it wasn’t given, and the batsmen went on to top score with 27.

Welsh did get a wicket later in that over, before Justin Tait took a fine catch off the bowling of Gary Alexander to give Hawick a glimmer of hope.

Ronan Alexander then got in on the act before Stuart Hair took an excellent caught and bowled, where the shot was smashed back at him, but he held on for the catch.

However, it was too little too late for Hawick, with simply not enough runs on the board.
